B2M Solutions, specialist in managing the mobile enterprise, has signed Logistics International PLC as a certified reseller of its mprodigy mobile management system. Logistics International is also using mprodigy to manage the mobile equipment used by its own Field Engineering team across the UK and Europe.
Logistics International delivers IT and Support Services and works with companies including Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Getronics and Fujitsu Siemens. Over the last three years, the company has built up extensive experience in delivering Enterprise Mobility Solutions and has successfully deployed and integrated mobile technologies based on Syclo's Agentry platform across a number of customer projects. The Syclo Agentry platform is also used internally by Logistics International's Field Engineering personnel to track the warehousing, deployment and servicing of IT assets across the UK and Europe.
Stephen McCorry, Technical Director at Logistics International says, "We've selected mprodigy as our strategic management platform. With its considerable breadth of capabilities, mprodigy can manage and deploy software to field-based mobile devices in an extremely reliable fashion over numerous transmission technologies including GPRS and WiFi. We particularly value its ability to enable support-managers to understand in full detail the status of all their mobility assets."
Logistics International's mobile computing practice provides integration services to its enterprise customers in sectors such as finance, retail and facilities management. "To deliver these services, we use advanced mobile technologies ourselves to deliver best practice and a high level of competence," continues McCorry. "Prior to using mprodigy, we were manually updating our estate of mobile devices which incurred high overhead costs. We've now been using mprodigy for the past seven months and it has already proved invaluable, helping us to improve the performance of our engineers."
McCorry concludes: "mprodigy has had a profound effect in both our own and our customer's ability to effectively and efficiently manage the mobile enterprise. Unlike other technologies we have experienced in this area which provide at best elements of a management solution, mprodigy truly sets itself apart by delivering robust, reliable and scalable management. It greatly improves the ability to deploy and manage mobile devices across the entire enterprise regardless of scale and geography."
According to Rod Moore, Managing Director at Logistics International, "The mobile market offers considerable growth opportunities. As our customers strive to develop their mobile enterprises, we can supply highly skilled people across Europe. They deliver the consultancy and integration services that pull together all the software partners to bring a comprehensive mobile solution to the end user. In this market, the mprodigy platform will become more and more vital to ensure the success of these mobile projects."
Julie Purves, Managing Director of B2M Solutions comments, "B2M's market strategy is to only provide the mprodigy solution through trusted channel partners and Logistics International meets and substantially exceeds all the prerequisites of our partner programme. It's a great pleasure to be working with them."
